It’s been a busy June for an endangered bird in Michigan. Seven peregrine falcons have hatched in different parts of the Upper Peninsula this month – three in Houghton and four in Sault Ste. Marie.
Brian Roell a state wildlife biologist in Marquette says the birds used to be on the U-S endangered species list.
The birds are no longer on that list but are still on Michigan’s. Roell says that could change in a few years.
Three falcon chicks hatched in a nest atop the Portage Lake Lift Bridge. Four others hatched in a nest on a bridge in Sault Ste. Marie.
